AVG Free edition

Ok, my AVG snapped up  a trojan, downloader.VB.R
iit placed it in the vault. It now says it's healed and the one in the vault is a backup. Am I good to go? or should i physically remove this?

I have gotten this before and I have just let AVG do what it does with it.

I haven't had any problems/programs/spyware/etc.  that I could say were caused by leaving it on there.

But, if you want it gone, delete it.

It will be fine, once a virus or trojan is placed in the vault/quarentined, it can not be run again. Everything that goes into the vault or is quarentined (the terminology depends on the specific product),  is encrypted thus unable to run.

Since the file is encrypted and basically scrammbled, it's not going to be doing anything...... Delete it if makes you feel better, but otherwise it is not nessesary to delete it.......

you're computer will be just fine...... I promise....
